Premiership Preview (03-04/03/07)

Pompey entertain Chelsea in our latest Barclays Premiership match, what about the others.

Saturday, 03/03/07
Arsenal v Reading, 15:00
Emmanuel Adebayor, Kolo Toure and Emmanuel Eboue (all suspension) are out along with the injured Thierry Henry, Tomas Rosicky, Justin Hoyte and Mathieu Flamini. Jens Lehmann, Abou Diaby and Cesc Fabregas return though.

Ibrahima Sonko and Bobby Convey (both knee) are the only absentees for Reading after their FA Cup heroics.

Fulham v Aston Villa, 15:00
Philippe Christanval (hamstring) is out but Frank Queudrue (bruised ankle), Zat Knight and Ian Pearce are back in the squad.

Wilfred Bouma has (ankle) and Luke Moore are back but Patrik Berger, Jlloyd Samuel and Stuart Taylor miss out through injury.

Liverpool v Man Utd, 12:45
Peter Crouch needs surgery on his broken nose but has put it off. Jose Reina, Craig Bellamy, Daniel Agger, Mohamed Sissoko, Dirk Kuyt and Xabi Alonso should all return.

Darren Fletcher (ankle) and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (knee) are out. Ryan Giggs will make his 700th appearance for United whilst Henrik Larsson will make his last, in the league anyway.

Man City v Wigan, 15:00
Emile Mpenza will make the bench at least for City whilst Paul Dickov (broken toe) returns. Darius Vassell (hamstring), Nedum Onuoha and Trevor Sinclair (both knee) are still out.

Henri Camara (long-term knee) and Fitz Hall (suspension) miss out but Caleb Folan (ankle) returns.

Newcastle v Middlesbrough, 15:00
Kieron Dyer (virus) returns whilst Stephen Carr (thigh), Emre (calf) and Craig Moore (hamstring) are training again but are doubtful to return just yet.

Mark Schwarzer (back) is an injury doubt in the Boro goal so Brad Jones could deputies again.

Sheff Utd v Everton, 15:00
Chris Morgan should return along with Keith (suspension) but Chris Lucketti (foot) is out along with Michael Tonge, Nick Montgomery (both suspension). Christian Nade and Danny Webber are doubts.

Alan Stubbs (knee) is likely to return but Tony Hibbert (groin) is out, but could take up a place on the bench.

Watford v Charlton, 15:00
Ben Foster (dead leg) is the only Watford injury concern but should recover and return to the starting eleven.

Souleymane Diawara (suspension), Hermann Hreidarsson, Madjid Bougherra and Ben Thatcher (all injury) are out so Jon Fortune (loan) has been recalled from Stoke. Marcus Bent (hamstring) is a doubt.

Sunday, 04/03/07
Bolton v Blackburn, 13:35
Abdoulaye Meite (suspension) and Kevin Davies (knee) are out but Tal Ben Haim and David Thompson (both suspension) are available.

Benni McCarthy is after a recall whilst Stephen Warnock (illness) has recovered and should return.

West Ham v Tottenham, 16:00
Lee Bowyer (shoulder) might return but Dean Ashton (broken ankle) is still out. Lucas Neill and Matthew Upson (both injured) also miss out.

Robbie Keane (suspension), Benoit Assou-Ekotto (knee), Steed Malbranque (groin) and Danny Murphy (calf) miss out whilst Jermaine Jenas (groin), Pascal Chimbonda (chest infection) and Didier Zokora (calf) are doubtful and need fitness test.
